In any statistical prediction problem involving items being used by customers in the field, it is important to attach the correct percentile number to each case of a failure. The method of “suspended items,” that is, treating unfailed items together with failed ones, is presented as one solution in this difficult problem of placing failures in correct order within a population. Once this has been done, the prediction problem can be solved in a straightforward manner, either graphically or numerically in a computer.
